Feels Like Another One...

I remember this time 2009, I was running around trying to find a doctor, a lawyer, and a new car. This year, 2010, I start it off with the flu. Will the end justify the means? It will if God is up in through...
Most times when you are going through your go-through, you never stop to realize that this is all a pruning process. A stage for you to grow whichever way you choose. Just keep in mind, if you do not learn the lesson the first time, you will ultimately have to go through the lesson again~until you get the story right.
So learn the lesson while you are in class. That way you do not have to repeat the lesson and miss time going forward because you are going around. Yep, the beginning of 2010 feels like another one--one more process to becoming the woman God wants. Step-by-step and Glory-By-Glory!!! That is how He does His thing.
Just remember when you are going through hell, make sure you keep going...

Soli Deo Gloria,

New Year's Priorities

I still cannot believe 2009 is gone and 2010 is here. Where did the year go? I know it's time I can never get back. Because of that fact, I know I need to make some changes.
There were several meaningful events for me in 2009, good and bad. With the onset of 2010, I have decided to have 2010 priorities--not resolutions. Resolutions seems so final, whereas priorities feel more flexible. Priorities change. Resolutions need to be resolved--like a permanent situation. Priorities...can change and usually do.
As we grow and become better than we were yesterday, we would hope that our values and beliefs change with us. And they should. So instead of having resolutions that make us feel like failures when they are not resolved, let's have priorities which will change as we do. Won't you join me?

Deo Volente,
